Arsenal are believed to be one of the clubs keeping tabs on Tottenham midfielder Eric Dier.
Dier has been limited to a handful of appearances this season, having lost his place in Pochettino’s starting xi and is now being linked with a move away from the club.
Football newspaper The Times recently claimed Bayern Munich and Chelsea are seriously interested in signing the young midfielder but bookmakers Ladbrokes have placed Arsenal in the running to sign the player.
Ladbrokes via The Express believe Arsenal have a slight chance of signing Dier and have placed the Gunners at 16/1 to sign the Spurs man.
The bookmakers placed Manchester City as favorites to sign the player at 3/1 while Manchester United and Chelsea follow closely at 4/1 and 5/1 respectively.
A Ladbrokes spokesperson said: “It’s not quite clicking for Dier and Pochettino at Tottenham this season, and it’s Manchester City who look best placed to take advantage.”
Dier has fallen out of Mauricio Pochettino’s starting xi and it is only normal that he is being linked with a move away from the White Hart Lane but I do not think there is any chance of the player joining Arsenal.
The player’s quality is not in doubt here but the rivalry between Spurs and Arsenal have allowed very few players played for both clubs and even the few that has managed to do so, damaged their relationship with the fans of the club they first played for. I’m not sure Dier would want to do that.
Dier is a hugely talented player but there is no way he will become a Gunner.
